I've lived at Quintessence farm for 35 years. The property has been continually updated and improved by myself and my parents over the last 38 years. I work at the City of Kingston and enjoy the relaxing pace of life on the farm. Sitting by the pool, enjoying the gardens or watching a movie is how my wife and I enjoy spending the weekend.

Luke Follwell purchased this chateau / country house in 2009

I have so many fond memories growing up in the country and would like to share some of my experiences with you.

Quintessence farm is very private and well kept. It is an easy commute to Downtown Kingston (45 minutes) and Prince Edward County (15 minutes). I enjoy coming to the farm for the weekend to relax.

GREAT GOLF WEEKEND!!!

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 7 men having our 26th Annual Boys Golf Weekend, and needed a place to relax, sleep, eat and catch up between rounds of golf at some of the nearby course. Quintessence Farm was perfect! Lots of space, great kitchen, loads of parking, lots of bedrooms, wonderful pool and hot tub, and of course the pitching green in the back was a great touch! It was stress free, comfortable, peaceful and convenient. Communication ahead of time was excellent. Close to some good golf courses like Black Bear Ridge. The only area for improvement is the water supply, which smells quite sulfury. Safe but sulfury. However, there was also a water cooler for good drinking water supply. The TV/ games room was a great place to watch some Stanley Cup playoffs as bonus. All in all, a great place for families and other gatherings. Two thumbs up!

CLEAN, PLENTY TO DO, AND MORE THAN ACCOMODATING

  • 5 of 5
A group of 10 (myself included), we all planned for a weekend getaway which was more than a success. Out of all the places that I've rented out in the past, I've never been to a location that was more than accomodating.
First off the amenities:
They provided a wii, they have a pond that can be used as an ice rink that is well lit at night, a firepit, a wide selection of dvd's to watch, a hot tub, a poker table, and a wall unit filled with various board games. There's enough to accomodate any age group.

The facilities:
The place had 3 bathrooms all fully equiped with a shower along with shampoo and conditioner, more than enough bedrooms, they even provided towels and toilet paper which is definitely not a common find! The kitchen was huge along with the dining room where we were all able to get together to eat.

The Quinessence farm went beyond our expectations this weekend and we would totally go back again!

GOOD VACATION

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at the farm. We were two families with small kids. There was plenty to do on the property as well as in the house for everyone, not once did we hear that the kids were bored. The Sandbanks is fairly close so we made a couple of trips there as well. The only complaint we had was the strong sulphur smell of the water (especially in the main floor washroom). The owners were excellent to deal with and always responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had, before, during and after our stay. Overall it was a great vacation :)

WHAT A FABULOUS PLACE TO HAVE A VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
This is our fourth vacation rental in as many years and it is by far our favourite! It's a place to call home for a week & we can't wait to come back next summer.

The house is huge and boasts plenty of space for everyone. The pool and backyard is where we spent most of our time. Bedrooms are nicely decorated and beds are comfortable. Lots of games, DVDs, etc... to keep kids busy.

The kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms are all well-stocked with dishes, supplies, soaps, detergents, linens, etc... All you need to bring are your clothes & food. Belleville is close by, so grocery shopping was easy.

Luke was very responsive from the time of my initial inquiry and was always available to answer questions. I appreciated the email that I received from him a few days into our rental to check-in on us.

Highly recommend Quintessence Farm!

A GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect gathering place for our two families (one from Toronto and one from Ottawa). Despite how many of us there were and how chaotic the kids could sometimes be, the size and layout of this place gave everyone MORE than enough room to spread out. The immense property allows for so much for people to do too!

The farm house is super close to Belleville and a nice drive out to Prince Edward County. The beds and bedding are comfortable, the kitchen is WELL STOCKED with all the necessary utensils, platters, glassware - you name it, and the house is well kept and the owners very attentive.

My only caution is the water pressure. There is VERY LITTLE in the showers - especially if you have people using taps and flushing toilets around the house. If water is heavily used, you may not get any water at all come from the showers. If you have long, thick hair like me - this can get a little tricky. That's my only caution. We LOVED this place and can't wait to go back.

FAMILY BBQ

  • 5 of 5
It was a great meeting/gathering place. The house is well laid out .. there's lots of activity .. you can be as busy as you'd like .. or just enjoy a quiet moment away from the hustle & bustle. One of the best equipped rentals we've had. We're already looking at next summer's vacation schedule to find a week convenient for all.
